7:00 am
is no new pope yet, but as that smoke poured forth dictating another half day's wait, the mood has gone from celebratory to anxious at vatican city. this morning another plume of black smoke pouring from the chimney atop the sistine chapel. the second and third votes of the conclave and still no new pope. just as last night's black smoke signaled the completion of the cardinals' first conclave vote. ♪ in partisan, honor established cardinals were not among the true contenders but more important, the electors first chance to see what favorites emerged. >> as the votes go on, a certain clarity usually arrives. i mean no one said that electing a pope was going to be easy but i imagine there is a growing clarity about what the options will be in the next few days. ♪ >> reporter: the ritualistic pageantry began just a few hours earlier when each of the
7:01 am
cardinal electors filed into the sistine chapel and one by one took the oath of secrecy beneath michelangelo's iconic frescos. the enormity of the moment and setting wasn't lost on cardinal timothy dolan of new york who seemed noticeably in awe of the scene above and around him. a feeling he described on his radio show earlier that day. >> it's sort of a unique special morning, huh. i never thought i'd be doing what i'm about to do. i just hope i see you soon. >> reporter: and with two simple and ancient words. >> extra omnes. >> reporter: simply everybody out and so it began. when we do not know when it will end cardinal dolan offered a guess that we'd have a new pope by thursday night to colleagues. and so it continues and again when that black smoke poured forth it would also mean that the electorate, the 115 cardinals inside the sistine chapel would then return to their residence, the santa marta house for lunch and more
7:02 am
discussion and really, robin, the first real politicking of the day before the votes continue later this afternoon. >> well, funny you should mention that, josh. thank you very much. we're going to go now to abc's cokie roberts who is also there in vatican city. of course, knows a great deal about politics and you heard what josh just said there, breaking for lunch right now. of course, everything is in secret but what's your best guess what's going on, cokie. >> oh, i think now you have the real politicking, because now they've had three ballots so they know who's not getting votes. they know they can't hold out for somebody that one of them might have thought was just really the perfect pope. so now they're starting to make, say, okay, if my guy is not going to get it, let me think about the other guy and somebody is probably working hard on them to make them think about another guy. the one thing we know is they're not allowed, at least officially, to make deals, so they're not supposed to say, if
7:03 am
you elect my guy pope, he will promise to name this guy as secretary of state or anything like that. no promises can be made. but i think that what you see in here is a winnowing of the field. >> it's like you said, somebody could have thought of somebody and realizing that that is -- that person is not going to be elected pope but it's not as you said, it's not politicking like we're used to here in america. >> no, it's not, although i'm sure that it's like old-style smoke-filled rooms when we used to have smoke, you know, in rooms, but i think it's more like that kind of politicking than the open sort of convention that we've gotten used to in recent decades. but i do think that there are different views about what's needed in a pope and that's one of the reasons it's not happening immediately. some people think that the pope
7:04 am
needs to come in and clean up the mess in the vatican. some people think that a pope needs to come in and be charismatic and communicative and get out in the world and talk to especially the youth of the world. some people are looking for continuity. a lot of people looking for change and so there are real differences of views inside those rooms. >> and that could be leading to why we're waiting for the fourth vote later today. okay, cokie, thank you very much. appreciate you joining us and diane sawyer is leading our abc news team coverage of the papal conclave with josh there in st. peter's square. we'll bring you all the latest from vatican city as it happens. but now to my exclusive interview with president obama. we sat down yesterday afternoon. a packed day filled with news on the pope, north korea and cyberattacks and with the president just back from a budget meeting on capitol hill i began by asking how he would overcome republican opposition to the new taxes by going around gop leaders or rolling right over them. >> i don't think it's to break or go around them.
7:05 am
i think it is to identify what i call the commonsense caucus, which says we can do sensible deficit reduction with a combination of entitlement reform, some judicious spending cuts, closing some tax loopholes that nobody really defends on their own and that's what i've been talking about for the last two years. >> that commonsense caucus on the republican side, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte, other senate republicans say you see a lot more entitlement reform from you before they can sign on to any new revenues like putting -- raising the medicare eligibility age back on the table. is that back on the table? >> well, one of the things, you know, that i've discovered in some of these dinners, which is useful, people don't actually know what i proposed and it's a lot easier to have a conversation when there's something specific. >> even those who have seen your plans say they need to see more. >> i understand which at some point i take myself out of this. what i'm trying to do is create an atmosphere where democrats and republicans can go ahead,
7:06 am
get together and try to get something done but ultimately it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we got medicare or got social security or got medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget and he says he's challenging you to come forward with a budget that reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no, we're not going to balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what he does is you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement
7:07 am
package, then potentially what you have is balance but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loan, family who've got disabled kids. >> you've been taking a lot of heat for the cancellation of the white house tours. the secret service says it costs $74,000 a week. was canceling them really necessary? >> i have to say this was not a decision that went up to the white house but what the secret service explained to us was that they're going to have to furlough some folks, what furloughs mean is people lose a day of work and a day of pay, and, you know, the question for them is, you know, how deeply do they have to furlough their staff and is it worth it to make sure that we got white house tours if it means you got a whole bunch of families depending on a paycheck who are seeing a 5% or 10% reduction in their pay. well, what i'm asking them is are there ways, for example, for us to accommodate school groups,
7:08 am
you know, who may have traveled here with some bake sales, can we make sure that kids potentially can still come to tour? >> your director of national intelligence james clapper told capitol hill today for the first time that north korea nuclear weapons and missiles pose a serious threat to the united states so can north korea now make good on its threat to hit the united states? >> they probably can't but we don't like margin of error, right, when it comes to -- >> it's that close. >> well, it's not that close. now, what we've done is we've made sure we have defensive measures to prevent any attacks on the homeland and we're not anticipating any of that. >> let me stay in the region because james clapper also talked about cyberattacks, put that at the top of his list of threats to the united states. a couple of weeks ago the chairman of the house intelligence committee mike rogers said we're at war with china because of their cyberespionage. they're winning that war and their government and military is behind it. do you believe that? >> well, i think, you know, always have to be careful about
7:09 am
war analogies, what it is absolutely true is that we have seen a steady ramping up of cybersecurity threats, some are state sponsored. some are just sponsored by criminals. >> but some are state sponsored. >> absolutely, and this is why i've taken some very aggressive executive actions but we need congress to act. we made very clear to china and some other state actors that, you know, we expect them to follow international norms and abide by international rules and we'll have some pretty tough talk with them. >> one more question. while we're here a lot of eyes on rome as the cardinals prepare to pick a new pope and for the first time some american cardinals on the list. what i wanted to ask you about there seems to be some concern among catholics there shouldn't be an american pope because that pope would be too tied to the united states government. what do think of that? >> it seems to me an american pope would preside just as effectively as a polish pope or
7:10 am
an italian pope or a guatemalan pope. >> and not take orders from you. >> i don't know if you have checked lately but they don't seem to be taking orders from me. my hope is based on what i know about the catholic church and the terrific work that they've done around the world and certainly in this country, you know, helping those would are less fortunate is that you have a pope who sustains and maintains what i consider the central message of the gospel and we treat everybody as children of god and that we love them the way jesus christ taught us to love them. >> we'll all be watching for the white smoke. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> and you can see more of my interview with president obama tonight on "nightline." >> very direct. >> he was and maybe those white house tours coming back at least for kids. >> that would -- with spring break coming up. something you did talk with the president about, george, we'll
7:11 am
get to those breaking new developments on the growing mass of hacking of so many high-profile people their allegedly private information posted online. now new names are emerging this morning. pierre thomas has the latest on the investigation. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. if some of these high-profile people really have been hacked we all should be very concerned. this morning, the sinister looking website has the full attention of the secret service and the fbi. after the hackers behind it claimed to have michelle obama's social security number and credit report. in an exclusive interview president obama would not say whether the posted information is authentic. but told george authorities are trying to find out what happened. >> we should not be surprised that if you've got hackers who want to dig in and devote a lot of resources, that they can access people's private information. it is a big problem. >> right into the white house?
7:12 am
>> again, i am not confirming that that's what happened. you've got websites out there that sell people's credit cards. >> reporter: private security analysts say the theft of such information can create havoc. >> if they have your credit report that's all they need to take over your identity. >> reporter: this morning equifax identified on the website it's confirming financial files for four high-profile people were recently compromised but the company is declining to identify them. the first lady is not the only potential victim. the anonymous website is posting what it claims is the financial information of a curious mix of the powerful and famous. ♪ >> reporter: on that list names like beyonce, kim kardashian, vice president biden and hillary clinton. and growing can now include kanye west, mitt romney, sarah palin and chris jenner. the fbi and secret service are trying to determine how much of the posted information is authentic and how it might have been stolen. robin? >> many people want to know that. all right there, pierre, thank you.
7:13 am
time for other top stories developing and abc's john muller is here for josh. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with a spectacular fire raging out of control south of new orleans. a gas pipeline burst into flames after being struck by an oil barge pushed by a tugboat. four crew members were injured but escaped. authorities are waiting for daylight to see how much oil has spilled. the catholic archdiocese of los angeles has agreed to pay nearly 10 million dozen to settle a claim of sexual abuse. the cases involve ex-priest michael baker would admitted to cardinal roger mahony he molested children for years. baker was allowed to return to ministry where he molested again. and this morning google is paying up to settle complaints that it collected personal data from people's wireless networks while taking photos of neighborhoods with its street view cars. the company will pay $7 million to 38 states. new battle on the war on soda. lawmakers in mississippi call passed the anti-bloomberg law to
7:14 am
take a stand against his attempt to ban large sugary drinks and will make it illegal for them to restrict portions and sizes. finally, scientific proof that women are grumpier than men in the morning. >> what? >> don't shoot the messenger. i'm just reading -- robin looks mad. it's science, sam. listen, researchers at duke university found women who don't get enough sleep are more hostile and angry than men who get the same amount of shut-eye and that's because they say women's brains are wired differently. that allows them to be better at multitasking as a result. apparently they need 20 minutes more shut-eye and robin and lara are never grumpy in the morning. never. >> why, i ought to -- >> very brave of you to do that in your first week on the job. >> well, you know, i got to pay the mortgage. >> great job. we'll turn to that strange story of the illinois golfer who got swallowed by the course, a sinkhole in the middle of the
7:15 am
fairway, scary drop for mark mihal and alex perez explains how his golf buddies saved his life. >> reporter: this was not the hole mark was aiming for when he took to the 14th fairway at annbriar golf course in illinois. >> it was terrifying. >> reporter: instead of hitting a hole in one, the 43-year-old golfer found himself becoming one swallowed by this sinkhole. >> the ground didn't look like there was anything there that was unusual. by the time i got pretty close to it and was gone. >> reporter: as his golf buddies looked on in disbelief he found himself being sucked 18 feet beneath the ground fracturing his shoulder. >> one of those things where i don't think we thought about anything except get him out of that hole. >> reporter: that's when ed magaletta and the rest of the foursome advantage into action. magaletta's the brother of five nurses and fashioned a sling with his wind breaker and with the help of this ladder went in. >> i got up it in lickety-split
7:16 am
and popped out like a rabbit. >> reporter: on his way down he was terrified and couldn't help but think of the man just one week earlier had lost his life when a sinkhole opened under his florida bedroom. >> just i came to mind as i was in midair probably so i was just freaking out. >> reporter: this morning mihal is home and feeling better. meantime, the golf course is now working on filling that sinkhole. he's even been invited to return, an offer he's not sure he's ready to accept. >> i don't know if i could play that course again, especially that hole. >> reporter: he's already set a course record for making himself a hole in one. for "good morning america," alex perez, abc news, chicago. >> really? >> had to go there. >> oh, man. sam, grumpy or cheerful this morning. >> i'm constantly grumpy. everyone here laughs because it's just me. i'm just grumpy. is there a light on? i can't tell. >> see. see what i mean. see. see what i mean. let's start with some video out of cedar rapids, iowa.

everybody wants to take a look at it but maybe it's not because of the kids. maybe it's because the boss in the picture -- wait, wait, wait. we'll show it to you. >> freeze it. >> we begin with that billionaire facing off with his former girlfriend in court. she's a brazilian soap star more than 50 years younger than him suing for $50 million. he's fighting back with a lawsuit of his own and john muller has the story. >> she is a beauty. he's a billionaire and the battle is on. george soros fighting back with court action of his own. details making the soap opera seem tame. it is a heated he said/she said that has all the makings of a soap opera. a billionaire philanthropist and sultry brazilian soap star and contentious court battle potentially worth $50 billion but this made for tv drama seemingly is playing out in real life as george soros filed a lawsuit against his former love
7:30 am
interest adriana ferreyr. 29 years old. the 82-year-old financier says his former flame best known on "marisol" became angry in 2010 after he told her another of his love interests was living in an apartment soros promised her and picked up a nearby lamp that was made partly of glass and attempted to strike soros with it. >> the police or district attorney's office never filed a criminal case, so i believe police investigators thought there was a credibility problem on both sides. >> reporter: soros' suit comes on the heels of a similar one filed two years ago by the brazilian soap star against him in which she claims he slapped her across the face and proceeded to put his hands around her neck in an attempt to choke her. in that suit she says he tried to hit her with the lamp. >> this is a classic he said/she said type of lawsuit and these are difficult to prove.
7:31 am
>> reporter: he is ranked the 30th richest person in the world by "forbes" with a net worth of $19 billion and donates hundreds of millions each year to charity but this morning he's trying to make sure he doesn't give any of his money to his former flame. now we reached out to attorneys for both sides and received no comment. if the court documents are any indication of what's to come, this will be known as a courtroom doozy. >> boy, i'll say, john. let's talk to dan abrams about this. now you have to lawsuits in the court. i guess is this george soros' way of trying to make it too expensive to -- >> they say in sports the best defense is a good offense and i think that's what you're seeing here. you're seeing soros basically saying, fine, you want to sue me, you want to make these claims i have some claims of my own and some of the claims he's making is based out of the same episode. for example, they're both accusing the other of striking them with a lamp meaning he says she hit him. she says he hit her. with this lamp. >> how is the court -- >> that's right. i don't know how they'll determine it at this point because as you heard in the
7:32 am
thing the police showed up and determined that no charges would be filed. so this is going to be a very, very tough case is this how about the underlying claim. can she really sue for breaking a promise? >> well, look, it's very hard. typically a contract, and we could have a contract orally. you could say i want to buy your car. i'm going to pay $20,000. we have a contract to do that even if we just agreed orally but you can't just say i promise to give you a car, typically, and have that be enforceable. that's called a gift. now, there are occasionally cases where courts will do something called detrimental reliance meaning i relied so heavily on that promise, i did so much because you made me that promise that the only thing that would be fair and just is if i get some sort of money or whatever the case may be. those are very tough cases to win. she's got an uphill battle here but no question she i'm sure would love to settle this out of court for a certain amount of money unless this is purely vindictive on one part or the other. >> no. >> i mean, couldn't be, right.

>> just raising the possibility. dan, thanks very much. okay. to you to that bizarre story out of california. a man charged with allegedly using visine to poison his girlfriend. first she got sick then she got suspicious and it's what she found in his phone records that convinced her to go straight to the police. abc's abbie boudreau has that story for us. >> reporter: a california woman says she got a real eye opener this weekend when she discovered that her boyfriend admitted to poisoning her with visine. police say 27-year-old shayne carpenter bragged to his buddies about spiking his girlfriend's drink with the eye drops after an argument hoping to induce the stomach churning effects of drinking the drops. >> she found some texts that made some reference to if she's going to be talking crap then she's going to be crapping. >> reporter: but the alleged prank turned dangerous. his girlfriend falling so ill she ended up in the hospital. carpenter confessed to police who hauled him off to jail.
7:34 am
then ingested eye drops can cause dangerous side effects like blurred vision, respiratory failure, seizures and vomiting. >> eye drops. >> reporter: in the movie "wedding crashers," bradley cooper's character was unknowingly poisoned at the dinner table and later paid the painful price. and in real life intentional poisonings are a real problem, not just involving eye drops, but other types of poisoning too with about 15,000 incidents a year. experts say women are usually the culprits. >> they see it as something that they can control and cause someone else discomfort with very little work on their part. >> reporter: and authorities say this woman put eye drops in her boyfriend's water about a dozen times over three years and reportedly said she did it so he'd pay her or attention. as for carpenter's girlfriend she is now out of the hospital and he's now out of jail after posting a $25,000 bail, a pricey

tanana, alaska, filled with wondrous landscapes matched but unforgiving terrain. whoo-hoo! i don't know what the temperature is but it's not warm. sam is one of the show's star, my first encounter with a yukon man. he offered me a lesson in dog sledding. >> go like that. use your feet to hold it. [ dogs bark bag ] >> you got it. >> reporter: now we're ready to roll. >> whoo-hoo! >> can run like this for a long time. >> i've had them run for a hundred miles. >> reporter: afterward stan gave me a tour of his property. it was like going back to the frontier days. >> this is the the backbone of a moose. >> decoration? >> we got them all over. >> yeah, this is a small wolverine. >> okay. this is one that i've tanned. i tanned this myself. >> reporter: and this isn't something you see every day. life in these parts may not be easy but each morning the "yukon men" wake up to this.

8:34 am
frozen yukon river, unbelievable. >> whoo-hoo! >> in case you think this is just a man's world, meet courtney. on the show she proves that girl power has a place here. she challenged me to a head-to-head ice drilling contest. it's courtney's turn to show her stuff. >> whoa. >> congratulations. you're the champion. luckily courtney's dad pat and her brother tom have decided to give me one more shot so what did they figure would be a worthy test of my manhood? eels. pat and his son tom feed eels, lots of them to their 50 sprint dogs. come on, mathison. you can do this. there you go. oh! ah. i'm a horrible yukon man.
8:35 am
horrible. not everyone is cut out for this way of life. it's full of risks and hardship and these "yukon men" would not have it any other way. for "good morning america," cameron mathison, abc news, tanana, alaska. >> thanks to the folks there. they sent mow a great video when i came back. it was so lovely and they're so close to the antarctic like that that i appreciate that. you can see "yukon men" on friday on discovery. for more behind-the-scenes access from "yukon men" and to see what the cast and crew eat for dinner. go to on yahoo! and more "gma" reality week tomorrow with a special surprise guest you do not want to miss. >> surprises all week. >> all week long. staring at the braxtons over there getting all ready for a big game show. they're just beautiful. >> a whole lot of lovely over there. a whole lot. >> really, really and truly. >> someone just ran out of -- >> this is going to be fun.
8:36 am
hang with us. we'll go from yukon to alaska. a lovely picture you sent us a sign of spring when you see the pear trees in bloom through the south it makes me feel good, ladies and gentlemen. in the middle of virginia beach a rainbow, they say, sure is on the left-hand side of the screen and east coast, in comes colder air. this looks like a pattern that may last not just the weekend but into next week. i don't really see a shift in this for several days. it's the jet stream making a big dip on the eastern seaboard and with it comes colder than normal temperatures so get prepared. i don't think it's stormy the entire time but i really do think there's a chill in the air and all that warm air is shoved west. looking for those milder temperatures, head west, young man, young woman.
8:37 am
>> all of that weather was brought to you by party city. i wouldn't tell you if it wasn't the truth, robin. >> all right there, sam. coming up next, steve carell live right here in times square. come on back.

8:42 am
>> all the time. every take would be different. you know, he would do 20 takes in a row and be invariably funny. >> if he played a daniel day-lewis and didn't break character on set. >> no, he wasn't in character the whole time, thankfully but steve and i found when in scenes with jim the hardest part was in keeping in the scene because you just want to be an audience member and watch him -- >> wow. what are you doing. >> he's so creative. >> you're the producer of this movie, as well so you got to bring this entire cast together and it is an amazing -- >> it's a good cast, yeah. >> who was the hardest one to get. >> the hardest one to get probably jim, you know, that was sort of a long shot. i just -- you know, we made a call and he read the script and loved it but alan arkin was a real -- i just love him. >> what a perfect role for him. >> well, i think he can do anything. olivia wilde is great and steve buscemi and james gandolfini. >> great group. >> certainly is. you told us you'll start to film
8:43 am
"anchorman" but your next movie had a very different turn. you play a murderer. >> yeah. >> tell us about it. >> that, it's called "fox catcher." ben miller is directing it and it's a story of john dupont and it's very dark and it's -- yeah, it's a departure for sure. >> so you're just mixing it up a little it about. >> mixing it up, yeah. from john dupont to brick. >> we hope you learned something here this morning. >> thank you. i did. i always do. >> "the incredible burt wonderstone" opens all across the country and when we come back, a special announcement from the braxtons.
